+1 Monte.

In my little corner of Queens, NY, not much damage... but only 5 miles away, 50 or more homes burned while firefighters struggled to gain access in chest deep water and whipping winds. This storm will have untold economic impact, as the cleanup and restoration will take weeks. This is the only time in memory that all access, tunnels, bridges, airports, and transit have been completely shut down.

Good to hear, UJ; thx for letting us know.

Though one cannot ascribe a precise proportional slice of blame for humankind, neither can we ignore the mounting evidence of increasing frequency of ever more dramatic storms in recent history. Just ask SDH how many of the hottest days on record have been in the past 30 yrs hereabouts.

Be safe...

Breaking all those records from the 1930's? I suppose we must be partially responsible, but why was the heat back then normal but today it must be from SUVs? If it is 50-100% from humans I doubt there's much we can do about it anyway, so why argue...We had one of our cooler summers in FL this year, but I wouldn't mind a little (or a lot) of global cooling.

Actually, ours go back 120 yrs, and statistically, there's no denying the HUGE increase; with indirect measures via tree rings and such, you can even infer shifts over the past 4000 yrs, but why rub it in?

Good to see ya, BD2!

Ok, so I listened to this show ... great show, except that I was jolted out of my chair during Not Fade Away by a truly hellish Donna screech. I mean this is one of the awfulest. at about 4:20, for those of you masochistic enough to check it out.
